Hi there.

 

I'm new to 'To-Do' and figuring things out.  I think it will nicely plug a gap in my task management.

 

What I'd like is for the app to automatically startup when I log into my Windows 10 desktop.  There doesn't appear to be a setting in the app and task manager does not seem to work with apps.

 

Does anyone know how to get it to automatically start up at login?

 

Thanks ... Steve.

Hey Salvatore,

 

That was an excellent suggestion!  I have set that up & hopefully it will startup in the morning!  (I had forgotten all about the startup folder - it is much more subtle in the newer versions of windows.)

 

Thanks! ... Steve.

Hi, The above solution doesn't work for Microsoft To-Do application.

Since it is an online application there is NO EXE to include in the Startup folder.

 

I tried dragging "Microsoft Store" to the startup folder but it didn' work?

 

Any suggestions?

 

EDIT: I found the answer: type:
 shell:appsfolder
 in folder address bar. (doesn't work in regular windows search), and drag the found link

to startup folder

Awesome tip. Not being able to find the shortcut was driving me nuts.
